The feeling in my stomach,
it isn't butterflies.
It feels like the stab of knives,
nine different times.

Then the feeling travels,
down towards my spine.
And that's when I realized,
my back contained the knives.

That's when my heart started pounding,
too fast for me to breathe.
And when I looked down I discovered,
my heart began to bleed.

I looked around in panic,
who was doing this to me?
No one was in sight,
but that's when I looked down.

My bloody knife fell from my hand,
before it hit the ground.
